Something Blue...

The challenge over at Gingersnap Creations this week is "shades of blue" and the challenge at Something Completely Different was Blue and White. ....Someone was on the same wave length! hehe
Here's my creation for Gingersnap Creations: a little something funky.... envisioning the possibilities! *wink*


I took plain white cardstock and went to town with my inks and spritzes (made in my Mini Mister with Perfect Pearls and Distress Ink re-inker). There was a whole lotts blending going on!
Stamps are from the following:
Scrolls Work Stamps: Envision (the saying), sm Face, Top Hat, Butterfly and Chess Board (again made to look like a floor - LOVE that)
Harmonie (a Canadian Company) - The Large Flourish
Tim Holtz (Stampers Anonymous)- Circles from "Bitty Grunge"
Stampabilities - Dress Form


And here is the "skinni" for Something Completely Different. I thought I should do something blue for each after all...

Careful.... the Glossy Accents are still wet!!
A little White paint resist technique, the same inks and some stamps (Harmonie, Tim Holtz and Stampabilities...)
Thanks for the challenge! That was fun!
